Exciting times at gold producer Metanor, Company has found its footing and is advancing toward 2nd front


Metanor Resources Inc.



Gold producer Metanor nets $2M income in last quarter, continues to intersect high-grades, and advances toward opening 2nd mine with PEA all-in costs of US$891/oz. Shares of MTO.V are definitely worth accumulating at its current trading price.



  • Steady cash on hand;

  • 100%-owned 1,200TPD mill and infrastructure has a replacement value in excess of $150 million Canadian.

  • MTO.V also offers a significant tax savings windfall value for a future acquirer with a loss-carry-forward on the books near-C$40 million, the impact could generate $11 million to $13 million in tax credits;

  • ~1.6 million ounces gold global resource in all categories (on all properties, two of which are permitted mines (Bachelor and Barry).


 Liabilities & obligations-wise:

  • Metanor has one convertible debenture outstanding of $9 million remaining outstanding, the term ends August 2017 (The Company is focused on 100% retiring it from gold production cash flow).

Noteworthy endorsements:


- Eric Sprott owns ~13% of MTO (click to view related news), also important to note is that there is a strong cast of high net worth individuals and institutions that together make up ~50% of the ownership.

Mining expert Jay Taylor of Hard Money Advisors Upgrades Metanor Resources to BUY with $0.20 Canadian price target:


"...if management can start to grow this company with internally generated cash funds and increase production from Barry, an upside considerably beyond US$0.10 is possible. However, given the company’s current assets, plus all it has going for it in terms of its exploration potential and the potential to combine its assets more efficiently under a well capitalized company, my view is that Metanor will become a takeover candidate by Osisko Gold Royalties or another major operating in Canada, and a sweetener for a suitor would be a tax loss of $15 million. If I’m right and gold is now starting out its next leg up in this secular bull market, a move upward into the US$0.06 to US$0.15 range could come sooner rather than later."

- J. Taylor Feb-2016




Valuation Commentary: Metanor Resources Inc. (TSX-V: MTO) (US Listing: MEAOF) (Frankfurt: M3R) is a successful commercial junior gold producer at its 100%-owned Bachelor Gold Mill in stable, mining-friendly, Quebec. These are exciting times at Metanor and considering all the Company has to offer and has planned, shares definitely appear worth accumulating at its current trading price; its market cap near-$30 million (trading ~7 cents/share) could easily double in short order. The Company has been producing gold since 2008, originally with the Barry open-pit, then migrating to the Bachelor underground. Metanor is now working towards taking Barry open-pit back online (MTO has PEA on Barry in hand with all-in costs of US$891/oz) and having two sources of ore coming into its Bachelor Mill. Having two mine ore sources will give the Company flexibility and further de-risk the company for shareholders. Metanor has a lot in its favor now; 1) it has the assets (100%-owned 1,200TPD mill and infrastructure has a replacement value in excess of $150 million Canadian), 2) it generates decent positive cash flow from gold production, 3) it is experienced and knows what to expect, 4) it is highly proficient at construction and development, 5) it has exceptional exploration potential, 6) the Company is no longer hamstrung obligation-wise anymore by loans to the Quebec government (having repaid them entirely), 7) and having satisfied its cash flow guarantee it is no longer obligated to process Bachelor ore for Sandstorm (Barry ore is exempt from the streaming agreement).


Special Advisory - Metanor holds key assets in one of the fastest developing gold camps in North America:


Area players that encircle Metanor's Barry property include Osisko Mining Inc.'s prolific Windfall Property, Bonterra Resources' Gladiator Deposit, Beaufield Resources' Macho claims, and Urbana -- ALL of which have seen 'off-the-chain' levels of interest of late; this February neighboring Bonterra announced a $15 million bought financing, Beaufield $6 million, Osisko $52 million, and Metanor raised $7 million (see February 15, 2017 news "Metanor Announces $7 Million Brokered Private Placement"). One look at the area (see Barry section further below) and it is obvious that Metanor holds key ground and the recent intercept by Metanor in Q4-2016 of '70.9 g/t Au over 2.6 meters' on the same trend as Osisko's Windfall deposit puts a target on MTO.V now. Add in the fact Metanor carries a balance sheet value of assets at ~$92 million (Source MD&A Feb-2017, yet the market cap is only ~$30M), including a 100%-owned mill -- MTO.V will continue to be under accumulation, especially so as a profitable gold producer.


Fig. 1 (below) Primary asset: 100%-owned Bachelor Gold Mill


Gold production -- Metanor firing on all cylinders:


Gold recovery rates at the mill are between 96% to 97% using Carbon in Pulp, and the Company's guidance for this year is ~35,000 oz gold production (fiscal year end is June 30th). For the last quarter ended Dec. 31, 2016 the Company had net income of $2 million, add another $3.289 million to that if you strip out Depreciation & Depletion write-off -- demonstrating strong positive cash flow. That income, in the last quarter, was generated off gold production of 9,764 ounces, gold sales of 10,430 ounces, and revenue of $15.9 million from gold sales. Cash costs averaged $889 per ounce ($667/oz USD), with all-in costs of $1,208 per ounce ($905/oz USD). Gold sales during the quarter were sold at an average price of $1,522 per ounce ($1,141/oz USD).


Graph 1 (above) - MTO per quarter gold ounces sold and cash cost - note cash cost are dropping.


Near-term Growth plan; two sources of ore + larger capacity. The Barry open pit is nearly ready to reopen (targeting Barry production entering 2018), the PEA has a payback of only 0.71 years (based on a gold price of $1,560/oz), and has an IRR before taxes of 198%. The next year will provide Metanor an excellent opportunity to expand capacity at the mill to accommodate more ore from both fronts. Increase mill capacity: Metanor's mill currently operates at 800 TPD capacity when processing Bachelor ore, and 1,200 TPD when processing softer Barry ore. The mill capacity can be expanded to 2,000 TPD in short order with a nominal capital cost of ~$7 million Canadian.


Comparatively 'as-is', ignoring plans, MTO's Enterprise Value/Gold oz, both in the ground and produced, shows the company trading at a compelling valuation that supports share price accumulation:



Additionally, Metanor also benefits operationally from foreign exchange, receiving a large $/oz price differential for gold in Canadian dollars over US dollars.

Fig. 3. (above) - Location map. The Bachelor Mine is increasingly being viewed as a coveted strategic asset being the only mill within 200km in a gold-rich district. Quebec is unanimously agreed in the mining community to be a stable, mining friendly region and is ranked as a top-tier jurisdiction by the Fraser Institute. Metanor benefits from low hydro-electric costs, is not affected by oil prices, and it has a stable workforce. The Bachelor Gold Mill complex is the only mill within a 100 km radius from Desmaraisville and the possibility exists to either custom mill ore from numerous surrounding gold deposits or acquire additional gold deposits. Shown in the inset (above right) is a sampling of known smaller gold deposits that warrant attention.


View of the Bachelor/Hewfran underground mine:


Figure 4 (above) -- Bachelor Gold Property Mine Claim blocks (Bachelor & Hewfran), Longitudinal Section Facing North; Section A - A. Both claim blocks belong 100% to Metnaor, however historically they had different ownership and were not explored to their potential. Metanor’s Bachelor mine was built alongside a pluton discovered on its property.


Metanor originally acquired 100% interest in the past-producing Bachelor mine and mill property in 2006 with a plan to refurbish the mill and infrastructure to restart mining. Metanor originally financed the sinking of the shaft and other improvements by entering into a streaming agreement with Sandstorm; MTO is able to sell 80% of its Bachelor Mine sourced gold at spot prices with the balance sold to Sandstorm as per gold participation agreement.


No shortage of gold at Bachelor/Hewfran: Recent drilling results continue to demonstrate, in-part, Metanor's ability to readily extend the mineable life of Bachelor, similar to how other successful area miners have operated (and several continue to this date) -- typically lining up a couple years of initial quality mineralized material but remaining operational for many decades, adding as they go. The Company is building serious new ounces at Bachelor (e.g. see latest February 2, 2017 news release entitled "Metanor Intersects 9.6 g/t Au Over 7.6 m at Bachelor Mine" & January 12, 2017 "Metanor Intersects 8.6 g/t Au Over 13.9 m at Bachelor Mine" & November 16, 2016 "Metanor Intersects 13.1 g/t Au Over 3.8 m at Bachelor Mine", and October 6, 2016 "Metanor Intersects 12.0 g/t Au Over 3.9 M in a New Sector of the Bachelor Mine"). The shaft at the Bachelor Gold Mine has been sunk to 2,400 feet so as to access known resources at that level, however it is believed the gold runs much deeper and Metanor is in a position to identify 1.5+ million ounces going forward. The two main veins at the Bachelor Gold Mine run parallel and are 75 feet apart at an 80 degree angle. Greenstone belts run deep, there are mines at 8,000 – 10,000+ feet such as area miners Aur Resources (now Teck Cominco), Agnico-Eagle and Sigma. The gold grade at the Bachelor property increases at depth and the strike is open in all directions at the 2,400 foot mark.


The best place to find a mine is proximal an old or existing one:



Fig. 5 (above) Around Bachelor Plan View -- The Pluton seen in the image above is to the east of the Bachelor Mine. The Pluton is the intrusive that caused all the gold to be deposited. The original showing that caused the Bachelor Mine to be discovered is on the other (East) side of the Pluton (labeled as 'Showing O'Brien'), however it was decided long ago when the veins of Bachelor were found to concentrate efforts there on the west side. There is lots of discovery potential on the property. The red marks on the left indicate the location of a historic poly-metallic mine. The most exciting new discovery of late has been the Moroy Deposit, located ~1km from the Bachelor mills head frame.


The Moroy Discovery (A.K.A. South Zone) -- Located ~1km from the Bachelor Mill



Fig. 6 (above) Moroy Plan View


The theory is that Bachelor and high-grade mineralized zones of Moroy link up at depth. There is potential for Moroy to surpass Bachelor/Hewfran in gold. Yet an entirely new mine on the mill's doorstep. Mr. Thibaut Lepouttre, Managing Director at Belgium-based mining and commodity research BVBA firm Caesar published a report in February 2016 in which he extrapolates results to date and sees potential* for 1,000,000+ new high-grade ounces from the South Zone.



Fig. 7 (above) conceptual mining plan for Moroy -- This image was taken from a 3D animation of the deposits, which may be viewed here.



Fig. 8 (above) Moroy - open in all directions, Longitudinal Section; B - B


Moroy is a recent discovery; September 22, 2015 Metanor announced it had intersected 10.1 g/T Gold over 26.2 meters near-surface (hole M0-15-14) in a new discovery zone not linked to anything previously known, only ~900 meters south of the headframe at Bachelor. This exceptionally stellar high-grade intercept begins at only 6.4 meters depth and has since been systematically followed-up:

Results to date in the new Moroy south zone confirm a huge multi vein system and the interpretation clearly shows Moroy structures with an East-West orientation, and a dip near 70 degree to the North -- this explains why anything in the area was never found in old exploration efforts; the main Bachelor Mine veins dip to the South and all historic drilling in the South Zone was mistakenly drilled to the North (parallel, making an intersect impossible).

The Emerging Barry Gold Camp - 100% Owned, located ~65km southeast of the Bachelor Lake Mine/Mill


 • Reopening the Barry open pit is a 'game changer' for Metanor, providing flexibility and options for the Company and further de-risking for shareholders.


Metanor first mined the Barry open pit from 2008 to 2010, pouring a total of ~45,000 oz gold from Barry sourced ore during that period. Metanor is now eager to return to Barry under an improved higher-grade (2+ g/T) model from a new 347,000 oz Au In-Pit resource (in all categories). The mill is proven and the recoveries are higher than when Metanor first mined Barry, the loan and streaming obligations that consumed cash flow are satisfied, and the crews are experienced.


Significant cash flow without high development costs at Barry open pit:

With open-pit production pegged to begin entering-2018 and ramp-up expected to attain 37,573 ounces/annum for year two (contingent on Barry ore supplanting Bachelor ore vs. juxtaposing the ore), Metanor will become a cash flow machine at Barry with all-in production cost projected at only $1,114/oz (US $891/oz). The PEA was performed using a gold price of only C$1,560/oz, financial analysis using higher gold prices of C$1,710/oz would generate a NPV at $78.07 million with an IRR of 246% before taxes. Under the base PEA we are looking possibly C$15M+ in positive cash flow per annum from Barry, under current gold prices we are looking closer to C$23M+ per annum in positive cash flow. Important to note is that Metanor will pay no taxes for at least the first 2 - 3 years with its loss carry forward on the books, plus there is no streaming agreement on the Barry project.


Highlights of PEA Barry all in CAD dollars, include:

  • Net present value (NPV) before taxes (at 6%) of $53.5 million;

  • Internal rate of return (IRR) before taxes of 198%;

  • NPV after taxes (at 6%) of $25.9 million;

  • IRR after taxes of 94%;

  • Capital startup of $8.5 million;

  • Payback of 0.71 years with a gold price of $1,560 / oz;

  • All-in production cost of $1,114 / oz (US $891 / oz);

  • For the life of the mine, a production of 193,457 ounces of gold over 9 years;

  • An average of 21,495 ounces of gold production with up to 37,573 ounces in year 2;

  • Milling of 1,200 tonnes per day at the Bachelor plant, with an average grade of 1.75 g/t diluted for the life of the mine including the first 3 years at 2.61 g/t with a metallurgical recovery of 95%;

  • Strip ratio mineralization of 2.17 to 1.

Figure 10 (right) -- Barry open pit



Fig. 11 (above) Barry planned open pit boundaries.


On June 22, 2016 the Company announced a new Resource Estimate (see 'Metanor Increases Total Ounces in New Gold Resource Estimate at Barry Pit') totaling 1,351,000 oz gold in all categories* (see breakdown further below). From an immediate mining scenario point of view, the geologists identified a total in-pit resources of 347,350 ounces at 2.07 g/t in 5.24 million tonnes calculated using parameters for direct shipping of mineralized material to Bachelor Lake mill where 45% is in the measured and indicated category and 55% is in the inferred category.



Fig. 12 (above) Barry open pit, open at depth -- This image from the PEA shows the existing pit and the proposed pit outline. Barry was mined to only ~28 m at its deepest point and is essentially ready to go back into service. The present gold corridor is nearly 1 km long with a width of approximately 140m. The yellow lines depict the orientation of the three stacked mineralized shoots.


Image of main pit from May 19, 2016 press release:


Potential to advance rapidly at Barry


The plan is to increase the resource, increase the 9 year mine life, do a pre-feasibility study, do the necessary construction, and be in production entering-2018. See related November 15, 2016 release 'Metanor Intersects 4.25 g/t Au Over 16.7 Meters at Barry'. There is in excess of 1 million ounces identified in the published NI43-101 in all categories. The initial operation presented in the PEA is a small operation, however there is no shortage of gold at Barry and the operation is scalable for ounces.


The Urban-Barry District - Metanor's Barry is knocking on Osisko's door.


The Urban/Barry mining camp is undergoing consolidation, Metanor holds key assets:


Metanor's Barry property is right in the middle of one of the fastest developing gold camps in North America. Area players that encircle the Barry property include Osisko Mining Inc.'s prolific Windfall Property, Bonterra Resources' Gladiator Deposit, Beaufield Resources' Macho claims, and Urbana -- ALL of which have seen 'off-the-chain' levels of interest of late; this February Bonterra announced a $15 million bought financing, and Beaufield $6 million. One look at the area and it is obvious that Metanor holds key ground and the recent intercept by Metanor in Q4-2016 of '70.9 g/t Au over 2.6 meters' on the same trend as Osisko's Windfall deposit puts a target on MTO.V now.


Fig. 13 (above) Barry claims surrounded, in part, by Osisko, Bonterra, and Beaufield. Note the 'Moss Showing' adjacent Osisko, this is a recent new discovery hole grading 70.9 g/t Au over 2.6 meters. The Barry deposit lies at the center of mineralized trend, with critical exploration targets. The main pit extensions over a 4 km potential strike. Exceptional targets are proximal Osisko's Windfall Lake and on trend with the successful results of Beaufield / Urbana. There are also excellent targets to the ENE, in close proximity to the Bonterra claims and on trend with promising early stage results have been reported by Bonterra.


Metanor makes high-grade gold discovery adjacent Osisko Mining's Windfall Property line on trend with the Windfall Deposit


On October 31, 2016 Metanor announced that it intersected 70.9 g/t Au over 2.6 meters in the Moss Sector located in the north-east section of the Barry property adjacent the Windfall property belonging to Osisko Mining. This drill hole intersects two gold bearing zones associated with sulphide (15%) in proximity to a regional fault. As per the drill holes, this dominant geological structure has a minimal length of 6 km, toward the Windfall property belonging to Osisko Mining. A segment of 3 km of this structure extends on the Barry property belonging entirely to Metanor Resources. The geological context and the structure controlling the Windfall deposit extend to this discovery. This new high-grade discovery dramatically enhances the attractiveness of Metanor to prospective suitors in an area under consolidation, as Metanor has quality grades adjacent Osisko and the only mill around.


------ ------ ------


The resource estimate at Barry now (as of June 22, 2016) sits at 305,000 oz Gold of Measured & Indicated Resources (8,420,000 t at 1.13 g/t Au) and 1,046,000 oz gold of Inferred Resources (31,919,500 t at 1.02 g/t Au) and is wide open for large resource growth expansion. The current 1km strike at Barry is potentially 13km, there are in excess of 150 anomalies outside the pit area. The Barry deposit is a potential multimillion ounce target; the independent international professional geological firm SGS Geostat has identified (click here for copy of that 121 page report) Metanor’s Barry deposit as comparable in potential to rival other multi-million ounce deposits such as Canadian Malartic gold deposit (formerly owned by Osisko, now owned by Yamana and Agnico-Eagle) & Detour Gold's Detour deposit.

Other than a 1% royalty (NSR), an additional 2% NSR is payable on metals derived from 13 claims, representing 10% of the property. There are no other obligations arising from production from the Barry open pit.

Other noteworthy holding projects in Metanor's portfolio


Dubuisson (100% owned) and Nelligan (70% owned) Properties: Metanor also has several other properties of significance including their Dubuisson property which precipitated MTO becoming a publicly traded entity in 2003. The Dubuisson property lies within the city limits of Val-d'Or, Quebec, where 9,000 m of exploratory drilling has confirmed a measured, indicated, and inferred resource of over 450,000 ounces of NI 43-101 compliant gold. The Nelligan property, which consists of 58 claims totaling approximately 2895 ha located immediately to the west of the Bachelor property and approximately 8 kilometers southwest of the Town of Desmaraisville and has turned up significant results and new gold bearing zones of significance have been discovered. Nelligan is in close proximity to the Bachelor Lake Mill. Sheared and mineralized horizons at Nelligan similar to the Vein A at the Bachelor Mine were exposed on the Billy group and the Valley group of Nelligan property. On the Billy group, assay values of 582 g/t Au over 0.53m and 3.15 g/t Au over 3.0m were obtained from channel sampling. On the Valley group, the best assay result was obtained from a grab sample of altered mafic volcanic with minor pyrite stringers and quartz veining and returning 3.25 g/t Au. Values obtained in channel samples demonstrate continuity of gold mineralization across the shear zone with grades of 2.02 g/t Au over 2.10m and 1.47 g/t Au over 2.25m.
